Although Belgium is known for more than their beer making abilities, when it comes to marathons, breweries and races seem to go hand in hand. The Beer Lovers' Marathon, held in Liege, Belgium began in 2012, and has been chugging along ever since. Not just about the beer, participants wear costumes and bands play, all while racers make their way around Liege. No shortage of thirsty athletes, you can beer taste while in transit. It is a one-of-a-kind good time!
The Maasmarathon De La Basse is a flat and fast course that takes place in the town of Meuse. The start and the finish of the race are both in the same location, the Queen Astrid Square, which is in the heart of the city. Participants follow a wonderful nature trail, and the competitive atmosphere is more like playtime. See all the historic sites of Meuse on foot, while trying to complete your best time, or make it to the finish line for the first time.
Although not quite a marathon, if you are looking for something outside the ordinary. then the Antwerp Runners' Lab Night Run is a perfect challenge. It is a 9km race that takes place at night. And the participants are all fashioned with headlights, literally, to guide their way. For those looking for a bit less competition and a lot more fun, this is the race to join!
